    I just changed out my pulls to these GR style zipper pulls using a 12" piece of 550 cord, 1" length of 1/4" shrink wrap and an overhand knot. Simple looking and clean.

    Paracord and solid brass fittings from plumbing section of big box DIY store. A tenth of the cost of fancy beads/lanyards, but they will still patina over time and look great!

    Go to paracord guild. Com or any number of other sites that have instructions. Fairly simple knot once you get the hang of it.

    That is a fantastic idea! I've been looking around for some reasonably priced copper/brass beads but they are all way more expensive than I am willing to pay!

    Trip to the DIY store after work tonight :bounce:

    I made this zipper pull for my new mongo bag. Its paracord with a small pill fob on the end. Its one of the most used zips I use and is so easy to grab and use.
    I really like the black one. But would like a better quality one if anyone knows of a make and model.

    I have been putting these on my packs for a while now. Exotac Tinder Zips:
    http://www.exotac.com/tinderzip/

    However, i'll let you in on my little secret because I think $9 for 5 zipper pulls is just stupid.

    Buy this:
    https://www.amazon.com/Fire-Cord-Paracord-Thin-Line/dp/B00V5IDJV8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1467120996&sr=8-1&keywords=Firecord

    and these:
    https://www.amazon.com/FMS-Plastic-Zipcords-6-Pack/dp/B00M5T8BY6/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1467126042&sr=8-18-spons&keywords=zipper+pull+tab&psc=1&smid=A1M56VSUFRM98G

    It's a MUCH cheaper route, more color options, etc etc.

    Changed the standard black 5.11 Tactical zip pull cord on my Rush 72 with some red/black paracord. Easier to see.
